Happy Holidays!


Every year I try to make a few non-specific holiday cards and this older SU! retired image works perfectly with a great matching sentiment. I pulled out some very old retired Baha Breeze dsp along with some pale blue card stock to put this together. I used a SB square and scalloped square set of dies to cut the panels, coloring the image with Copics and adding some stamped snowflakes and stickles for snow. The 2 blue snowflakes were done with Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake dies and dotted with tiny blue gemstones.

I'll share this card with the following challenges:

I guess I didn't realize that the Baja Breeze was an old one! LOL! I still use mine and love it! :) (Err...I guess I will use it until it runs out anyway! LOL!) I remember this sweet snowman, but no longer have it! I love it for winter cards and I love yours with the added snowflakes and scalloped layer behind him! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful scene with that cute snowman and those stitched snowflakes. I love the dies you used to frame the design as well as the wonderful pattern paper.

I like your cheery snowman card with the lovely stamped and die cut snowflakes. Nicely coloured with your Copics, great shading on his hat... I can't use alcohol pens so I love seeing how others achieve great results without the dreaded bleed x

Baja Breeze was always a favorite SU color of mine and I have that same DSP! I love how you carried the color all the way to the foreground with the snowflakes! The gems for his coal buttons finish it off perfickly! Happy Holiday Hugs, Darnell (I hope the photo editing is going well!)
